Sewing and Pattern Making are both true passions of mine, I love learning new techniques and how to use different types of machines so that I can incorporate them into my design. Colour is also very important to me as it represents different moods and emotions and learning to combine them makes me feel accomplished.
Looking to the future I hope to become a pattern maker some day, as I'm over interested in this skill. I also hope to be a part of a studio workroom environment where I can express my leadership and delegation skills.
In 1999, Taiwan was rocked by a massive 7.7 earthquake known as “Jíjí dìzhèn” that left a huge wake of destruction throughout the island and emotional scars that remain till today. The country was a mess of shattered concrete, exposed and deformed steel bars and the collapsed silhouette of buildings.
With this collection I have expressed the importance of internal structure and framework in order to create stability and support and combined this framework with the raw elements of tailoring to represent the shattered exposed structure of the buildings.
Because clothing is also constructed layer by layer, like architecture, if you don’t lay the foundation well at the beginning, it will lead to the final result. There are also many details. I transformed it into a lining on the clothing. Hand sewing, hemming, natural fabric fringing, etc., emphasize the importance of these fine workmanship to a piece of clothing!
